Tim Nanai Williams scored a try in each half for the Chiefs

Tries from Asaeli Tikoirotuma, Bundee Aki and Tim Nanai-Williams gave the Chiefs a 24-19 half-time advantage, although they needed Gareth Anscombe's impressive boot to stay ahead as the Sharks scored three tries themselves through Lubabalo Mtembu and a Derick Minnie brace.

Nanai-Williams went over again before Anscombe increased their advantage with another penalty. Keegan Daniel kept the Sharks in it before Pat Lambie and Aaron Cruden traded penalties late on.
